5 interesting food combinations that work Soy sauce and ice cream Soy sauce is comprised of a range of aromatic flavours; sweet, salty, bitter, and sour. It is said that this vast variety of compounds is one of the reasons why it goes so well with so many different types of food, especially ice cream. The savoury and saltiness of the soy sauce enhances the sweetness of the ice cream. The many flavours in soy sauce can even make your ice cream seem richer than it is. It even could give off a caramel taste. The next time you indulge in ice cream, why not add a little soy sauce to add a flavoursome twist on a traditional dessert?

Vegemite and avocado An Aussie classic, vegemite and avocado paired together on toast creates a beautiful breakfast combination. The saltiness of the vegemite brings out the subtle flavours of the avocado. It’s just like adding salt but better.

Banana and meat The combination of banana and meat by themselves or paired with waffles or pancakes is an unbeatable combination of food.
